The Club is delighted to announce we raised over £32,000 for The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal campaign through our recent online auction of special edition match shirts.

The Club is delighted to announce we raised over £32,000 for The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal campaign through our recent online auction of special edition match shirts.

Shirts worn by our players during the 2-0 Premier League victory over Sunderland at the Lane on Saturday November 7, all bearing a specially embroidered poppy, were signed by the lads and auctioned off to fans.

The auction received an overwhelming response, with supporters bidding thousands of pounds for these exclusive items towards a staggering total of £32,547 - more than any other Premier League club.

Ledley King's signed match shirt fetched the highest amount out of all available items - a whopping £2,500!

All money raised in the auction will go towards the Poppy Appeal, which aims to offer support for those who serve, emphasising the increasing need to help the men and women who are serving today, as well as ex-Services and dependants.

The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who took part for making such a significant contribution to this worthy cause.
